Stella was surrendered to a shelter for having too much fun chasing sheep. While there, volunteers noticed her stiff gait and referred her to Oregon Veterinary Referral Associates. Drs. Olmstead and Csiszer diagnosed Stella with bilateral cranial cruciate ligament tears and performed TPLO procedures on her left and right knees. Stella now lives with Dr. Csiszer and is enjoying an extremely active lifestyle with no lameness.
